As Kobani's Kurds - with help from the United States -
Hold off ISIL fighters, Turkish forces shut the gates;
Haven't let the Kurds from Turkey reinforce the town,
And it isn't just their borders Ankara's shut down.
They've been less than useless - even bombing local Kurds.
Were their promises to help with ISIL only words?
Erdogan's demanding more than we're prepared to do;
(He wants us to promise that Assad's a target, too)
Taking on another foe before we've crushed the first.
Assad is a tyrant, true... But ISIL's still the worst.
Time that Turkey offers us a neighborly assist...
Let's take care of ISIL before adding to our list.
